Mirwart Castle is built on a rock rising above the the Valley of the Lomme. It was a stronghold belonging to the duchy of Lorraine with the oldest parts dating back to the 11th century.
During the numerous conflicts between Spain, Austria and France in the 17th and 18th centuries, the castle was damaged several times. It was only at the beginning of the 18th century that a long undisturbed period began when extensive renovations and embellishments could be undertaken. During this process the castle gradually lost its strongly fortified character.
After World War II the castle was acquired by the province of Luxembourg. The building was renovated but the province failed to find a use for it.
